It sounds as though the heatsink and fans may be clogged with dust
As a temporary measure you can buy a laptop cooling tray that you sit the laptop on. This contains fans and encourage airflow into the laptop cooling vents
You can try clearing it with a can of compressed air you can buy from any computer store, by blowing back through the vents but if that doesn't work the laptop usually has to be stripped to gain better access. This is not normally a DIY job unless you have done this before. Sometimes the heat sink and fans are easily accessible after removing a cover, other times the motherboard has to be removed which involves a complete stripdown
May be have a look on youtube for a disassembly video for your model so you can see what is involved

get a fan equipped cooling pad for underneath the laptop

Check for dirty fans, all fans including the CPU fan.
